Would you like to work in an outstanding school as part of a supportive staff team? We are looking for a new teaching assistant from January 2019 to work 1-1 with a child with additional needs in our Year 1 class.

Hours of work are 8.30-3.15, every day in term time (31.25 hours per week). The role includes a half hour lunch duty every day. This will be a temporary contract, as it is linked to the support needed by an individual child.

Please state any relevant experience of speech and language or support for medical needs as part of your application.

We are looking for someone who will be able to fit into our culture and ethos of putting the children at the heart of everything we do. You will be caring, organised, enthusiastic, flexible and friendly, with experience of working with young children. The ability to work well as part of our team is crucial.

At Ryarsh Primary School we can offer you:

  • a welcoming school, genuinely at the heart of its community
  • a creative, supportive and friendly staff team
  • children who are motivated, articulate and great fun
  • a newly improved school environment on completion of our current building project
  • excellent opportunities for professional development
  • flexibility to build on your strengths and talents

We are proud to be a highly successful school, rated Outstanding by Ofsted. Our visitors tell us that our school has a great feel and ethos, living up to our school motto, "forward thinking for a brighter future".
